Making Of A Gangsta Workshop offers significant current, relevant and practical information to understand "gangsta ideology." There has been radical paradigm shift in gangsta culture in the last 25 years from "old-school" mentality to a "thug-life" philosophy. 

Making Of A Gangsta training hones in on "gangsta etymology" and the impact of gang-related activities & trends. Workshop topics include: 

- Hip Hop Culture Impact on Gangsta Culture
- Illegal Trafficking involving Transitional Criminal Organization (TCO)
- Rise of Social Media and Online Engagement 
- Shift in Criminal Justice System 
- Shift in Political Climate 
- Trauma before Gang Involvement 
- Trauma during Gang Involvement 

Making Of A Gangsta Workshop is designed to build capacity for social workers, case managers, street outreach, drug substance specialists, educators, therapists, law-enforcement, district attorney's, faith community and volunteers to help gang minded individuals with life skills for purpose thinking. Like most people walking on our planet...gangstas want the good things in life. Beneath the layers of toughness, there is a person...a real person full of potential looking to achieve purpose and greatness. 

*We have included a Personal Development (PD) Certificate Option. An online link is provided for an certification test.
